Since our inception in 2010, Bowel Cancer NZ has been vocal in advocating for a national screening programme, which finally began to be rolled out in 2016. But that was just the beginning. We are currently:
- Calling for increased urgency for the nationwide rollout.
- Lobbying for bowel cancer screening to be dropped to age 50 for Māori immediately.
- Advocating to lower the age of all participants to 50 years once screening is implemented nationally, in line with international best practice.
- To meet the far-reaching aims of our 2020 manifesto: to achieve 10 goals within 10 years.
